New shows at the Barn

TREMONT — Two teams of artists-in-residence will present work from the Barn Arts Residency program on Saturday, April 27, at 7 p.m.

“Rabbit” is a new theater piece for young people exploring books and stories for children featuring rabbits. The show is being developed by Animal Engine, a New York City-based physical theater company that has toured the country with original performances adapted from literature.

“In the Woods Where the Men Work” is a new play that considers the impact of climate change. The piece will be touring to Europe later this year at the Prague Fringe Festival.

In addition to the development work on each of these pieces, each team of artists-in-residence is working with a local organization through a community partnership for their residency.

Karim Muasher and Carrie Brown, who are developing “Rabbit”, will be at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Thursday, April 25 at 3:30 p.m. to work with young people through the library’s Reader’s Theatre program, and the artists developing “In the Woods Where the Men Work” are partnering with A Climate to Thrive to meet with local climate activists to discuss the role that the arts can play in our collective response to climate change.
